Pros

Great culture for a mid sized broker dealer. Wonderful people to work with on a daily basis. The advisors in the field are great and have built many relationships that I would hate to leave. Fast growing company that has avoided all the pitfalls of other firms.
Not overly micro managed.
Very entrepreneurial.
14 consecutive years of RECORD revenue. Awesome!!!

Cons

Compensation for home office personnel needs to be fixed now rather than later, because when the economy starts to turn and competitors start to hire, I'm afraid some very talented people may leave.

Home office departments are too siloed. No communication. Has lead to unnecessary spending on software, etc.

Due to the large growth of the company, many areas are significantly understaffed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't forget about the little people who keep the company running and are an integral part of the advisors business.
Need to get all middle management on the same page. It would save thousands of dollars.

    Not a lot of negatives. Low pay relative to those on the Street, but Baltimore is a lot cheaper than NYC. Overall, good place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice. Management does a great job and has been rewarded. Stock is doing well and ron makes a ton of money.
